KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs cut their roster to 53 Saturday. Here's a look at the depth chart:
The Chiefs are going with two for now at least after releasing veteran Matt McGloin after the initial cutdown to 53 players. McGloin could be back at some point.
Darrell Williams is an undrafted rookie who showed enough at training camp to force his way onto the roster. He doesn’t figure to play much playing behind veterans in Hunt, Ware and Damien Williams.
Hill, Watkins, Conley and Robinson will get most of the playing time.
Demetrius Harris, the second-string tight end, will serve an NFL suspension for the opener and won't be able to return until Week 2.
The Chiefs like their depth here because they’re keeping a lot of lineman, including Boettger, who was claimed off waivers from the Bills. McKenzie and Boettger are developmental prospects who won’t play much if at all.
Nnadi, the Chiefs’ third-round draft pick, earned playing time with an impressive preseason.
Speaks, O’Daniel and Niemann are rookies. The Chiefs are looking from a bounce-back season from Ford, who had 10 sacks in the first nine games in 2016 but only two since.
The Chiefs cut David Amerson, who entered training camp as their third corner but was awful during the preseason.
The Chiefs obviously weren’t comfortable with what they had here because Lucas and Parker arrived only in the last week. Parker, though, started for the Chiefs for the past five seasons before being released last winter so he could wind up playing a lot.
The Chiefs had no competition for their kicker, punter or long snapper in camp.
